Decided to do another Star Trek build.
This time, I'm doing the 1/2500 scale USS Discovery from Polar Lights.


Like with the Enterprise kit, there are plenty of pieces to work with




As well as full aztecs


For the clear parts, I painted a base coat of white on the areas that would show, followed by either transparent red or blue, depending.
The saucer domes stayed white, while the metallic parts of the bussards and navigational deflector were painted in with Citadel's Leadbelcher


Initial assembly was finished fairy quickly in sub-assemblies, although the instructions did swap the part numbers for the impulse engine inserts (that, or I did)

Kit-supplied aztecs were laid down on the sub-assemblies, which was followed by final assembly and a clear coat.
The only real issues I had were my own fault for not getting the ones on the bottome of the secondary hull lined up right

Finished build pics









All in all, she's a fairly large ship. Her saucer's about the same size as that of the Enterprise, but her nacelles are almost as long as the Enterprise
